Aodh Ruadh claim Sean Slevin trophy

Saturday last seen a great display of football with teams from Donegal, Leitrim and Fermanagh taking part in the annual Sean Slevin under 14 memorial tournament. After some very close encounters at the group stages it was the hosts, Aodh Ruadh, and Saint Mary's from Carrick-on-Shannon who contested the final. In what was absolutely perfect conditions for football Aodh Ruadh took an early lead knocking up 1-1 before Saint Mary's made any reply. A very strong Carrick team dug deep and managed to draw level just before the stroke of half-time. Saint Mary's started strongest in the second half pulling two point ahead but a Michael McKenna goal gave Aodh Ruadh the advantage again midway through the second half. Saint Mary's scored another few points but a beautiful Evan McTernan goal in the dying minutes sealed the win for Aodh Ruadh by the narrowest of margins leaving the score Aodh Ruadh 3-2 Saint Mary's 1-7. Thanks to all the parents who helped out on the day with catering making sure that everyone was well fed. Thanks to Raymond Granaghan who helped keep things running on time and to Shane Toolan and David Hoey, our referees for the day.
